      Surprised it has not been mentioned yet, but the 020 transaxles on mk1, mk2, mk3 VW Golf/Jetta that used rivets instead of bolts to hold the diff in place. Ticking time bomb. Pretty impressive to see...

      Best of both worlds: EV for daily suburbanite commutes (provided it has enough range on electric-only mode) + Diesel highway efficiency.

      I'd say they design and build it in a more ectoplasmic way these days... :D Seems like a lot of people are determined to not let Saab rest in peace since it died. At this point, I think it should...

    7. Oil prices falling: are EVs and plug-in hybrids in danger?

      I thought there was a thread on oil prices not long ago, but I can't find it...

      Anyway, OPEC wants oil prices to go down so that it is no longer profitable to make fracking and tar-sand oil. Do...

      Although I'm not a big fan of these bling mobiles, a lot of them are (at least partly) hand-built and I find it a bit sad to see the craftsmanship involved in these cars go up in flames. :(

      They probably should have started with an 8-speed auto or that mystical 10-speed they are supposed to be developing with GM. That combined with aluminum should have been impressive... at least in...

      So let me get this straight: so they want to honour RR's relationship with India's kings, so they sell to model exclusively to Dubai? What am I missing? :what:

      Not cheap, but with this kit, the car will keep its value better than with pretty much any other kit out there. It will actually most likely become a collector's item... someday.

      Sprinter 4X4 now available in Canada

      At least it is on the Canadian Web site.

      Am I the only one excited by this? Would make an awesome overlanding machine. The price is a bit eye-watering though, as expected...
